From the moment you arrive at the Panoramic, you know this is going to be special. All the rooms have views over the valley to the north of Lalibela; it is truly spectacular. The roof terrace bar is a lovely space to while away an afternoon, and the ground floor restaurant also has an outside terrace with a fire pit to enjoy the evening. The food in the restaurant was excellent for both breakfast and dinner, and the beds were really comfortable. First rate!

Easily the best hotel we stayed in North Ethiopia! This is the best and of course 100% recommended hotel in LALIBELA. Everything is perfect here. Amazing view of the region! Rooms are very clean and well kept. Our room have a private balcony over the beautiful view of Lalibela. Easy 10 minutes walk to the 3 groups of Lalibela churches. I really loved the food in the hotel and the view from the resturant. a charming owner that will come every corners and talk to you what's needed. There is a wide screen to enjoy sports and games as there is a private power generator when the power off. It was unforgettable experience The name tells everything and absolutely you love the location and the service. I strongly recommend Panoramic view hotel Lalibela. All the service given is considering Covid-19

we booked this hotel but were shown a room in what turned out to be an entirely different, unfinished hotel. Presumably they had overbooked. The room we were shown will be nice, but was unacceptable for a whole host of reaons. It was very difficult to get this agreed, even though the room was so obvioulsy unfinished (including the shower, curtains, strange, limited furniture, etc.) Eventually we were able to get a room in the Panoramic View itself because people had not arrived due to the weather. The room was OK - and the view is as the hotel name suggests. The rooftop bar is good when teh weather is fine - but there should be another bar for when you can's sit there due to the weather. The service in the restaurant was slow for some, but the food was better than average.

The hotel was beautiful and so were the people at the hotel that took care of us. Of special mention was Abey Berihun, who took care of all our requests. Abey gave us good service and made our stay very happy. We also enjoyed the coffee service by Samrawit. The restaurant was very good, we enjoyed 2 excellent dinners and breakfasts. We stayed 2 nights and the room was neat and clean. We loved the view from our room. The bed was comfortable for both of us. The pillows and sheets were soft. We loved the hotel and would return again. The wall art was unique.
